Security firm Rapiscan names Euro lobbying chief

BRUSSELS: A US security company has bolstered its European lobbying cap­abil­ities as it looks to capitalise on new airport security measures.

Rapiscan Systems has app­ointed Stephen Hogan to the newly created role of director of government affairs Europe.

Based in Brussels, he reports to Peter Kant, vice-president, global government affairs.

Rapiscan provides a range of sophisticated baggage- and peo­ple-screening devices to airp­orts across the US.

Hogan said: ‘My role will involve maintaining ongoing relationships with EU institutions and helping to shape policy around security by advising what is technologically possible.'

Hogan joins from the Airports Council International, where he was head of communications, reporting to director-general Olivier Jankovec, and based in Brussels. Prior to this he was head of APCO Europe's transport practice in Brussels, reporting to Richard Bullard, director of public affairs.
